Del Monte Vegetable Snacks Linked to Intestinal Parasite Outbreak


If you have any of the vegetable trays in your home do not eat them and throw them away.

The agencies said seven people have been hospitalized for the illness. "The two cases from MI reportedly purchased the vegetable tray in Wisconsin and therefore MI is not impacted from this outbreak", said the FDA. As many as 54 cases have also been reported in Minnesota, along with a handful in Iowa and MI.

According to the CDC, "Most ill people reported eating pre-packaged Del Monte Fresh Produce vegetable trays containing broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, and dill dip".

They were recalled on June 15, 2018, for trays with a "Best if used by" date of June 17.

The CDC is recalling a Del Monte vegetable tray sold at Kwik Trip and Kwik Star locations after there have been 212 laboratory-confirmed cases of cyclosporiasis in people from Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and MI.

Cyclospora cayetanensis is a microscopic parasite of humans.

Anyone who ate anything from any of the recalled vegetable and dip trays and developed symptoms of Cyclospora infection should seek medical attention and tell their doctors abut the potential exposure to the parasite. Therefore, it is unlikely that cyclosporiasis is passed directly from one person to another. Some people who are infected with Cyclospora do not have any symptoms. According to the Food and Drug Administration, symptoms of cyclosporiasis include severe diarrhea, stomach cramps, bloating, nausea, and fatigue. Vomiting, body aches, headache, fever, and other flu-like symptoms may be noted. Without treatment, the infection can last from as little as a few days to more than a month.

A previous major cyclosporiasis outbreak was reported in 2015, when 546 individuals were infected across 31 states.
